Re: PCI-Express x1?
Gigabyte I-RAM. Solid state storage is a old concept, but unpractical due to it's high price. What it does is use normal sticks of DDR RAM as storage like normal hard drives. Except, it's faster and runs cooler due to no moving parts. However, there is one catch. Since RAM is volatile, meaning if no energy is running at all times, it loses it's data. So what Gigabyte did is have a small battery power the RAM when the computer is off. When your computer is on, it recharges the battery. Some use external power sources and some don't. Depends on manufacturer.
